About this project

By Mia Dominguez-Letelier

I am 8 year old in 3rd Grade.
I love to write and read comic books. Little LuLu, Nancy, Snoopy, Adventure Time and many more. I believe my dad has special powers and he can do ANYTHING. This book is based on my favorite daddy he meets all the animals. I created this book so he can read a book with me. I wish everyone to read books to kids. My dream to publish this book and many many children to enjoy the book with their sisters, brothers, grand parents and all their families.
If this project wins, I am publishing 500 books of Chubby Daddey. I would like to donate 100 books to the reading charity people so I can help more children enjoy books I hope to have my dream come true.

So lucky to be surrounded by so many talented ladies and gents here at Meltdown. Just look at this, a collaboration with Sophia Lin who is working together with Mia, my 8 yr. old on her Kickstarter project. Fantastic.

Ryan wants to say something about this project. Thanks, Ryan.( filmed by her brother Gil the Mutant Season. )

This is a Children's book made by a child and still needs to edited to realize the full potential and vision Mia has for a book series. Mia is an avid reader and has an extensive collection and clear ideas of what she wants. This includes fixing some pages, painted pastel and neon colors and some bits to be made with a book designer she met. Mia wants the book to look like the classic Golden Book series but smaller and with a neon color spine. She is hoping to continue to make different stories in the series. Chubby Daddey will be the first one. Thank you so much for reading this.
